Re: Time out for a 19 month old?

We did time out starting at a year old, and it worked for us. Any attempt at hitting was (and still is) an IMMEDIATE time out.

Otherwise, we do 1-2-3 magic. But there is NO counting where hitting is involved.

ETA.... DS used to kick during diaper changes and it drove me INSANE. I don't remember what I did to handle it, honestly, because it ended almost as quickly as it started and now it's just a vague memory I think I just grabbed both feet in one hand and held them very firmly still while totally ignoring his attempts to kick me. And I changed diapers very fast...
